The Gili Eco Villas have built seven villas just a stone throw away from the white beach. Electricity is created through solar panels and wind, except for the air conditioning and pool pump. Their classy white-wash villas are built with recycled teak wood and nicely decorated with furniture made from natural products. Additionally the Gili Eco Villas have created an organic garden and recycle organic waste and water.

They also participate in teaching local children English and drawing at a local school and nursery. If you want you can join them too. An other great thing that Eco Villas can arrange for you is helping out at the turtle nursery on the island.

It is quite a surprise that there are not many accommodations on the Gilis that show similar initiatives as these villas considering the fragile eco system of the islands. Hopefully others will realize that change is crucial and will also start implementing sustainable tourism in the near future.
